Apple Seeds Third Beta of Upcoming watchOS 5.1.3 Update to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming watchOS 5.1.3 update to developers, three weeks after seeding the second beta and a month after releasing watchOS 5.1.2.

Once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Apple Developer Center, the new watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software update.


To install the update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone.

As a minor 5.1.x update, watchOS 5.1.3 likely focuses on addressing issues that weren't able to be fixed with watchOS 5.1.2. No new changes were found in the first two betas of watchOS 5.1.3, but we'll update this post if we find new features in the third beta.

The prior watchOS 5.1.2 update introduced the long-awaited ECG feature for the Apple Watch Series 4, allowing Apple Watch owners to take single-lead electrocardiograms to detect atrial fibrillation, which can be a sign of serious health problems.

Not a lot to say here so I will just get it out of the way. Update works fine, nothing appears to be different but its been that way for many things as of late. Ha.
